The garden today, at the beginning of this new gardening year, with most of the beds now covered with goat manure.
This morning we spent some time in the sun in the garden, planning this year’s planting and pruning the apple tree and the roses.
|The autumn-sown beans (left) are growing well and have recovered from the frost we had a few weeks ago. We’ve transplanted some lamb’s lettuce seedlings (above) into some of the lovely compost we’ve made|
Our first crocus of the year is flowering and another one will be out soon.
|This Red Admiral butterfly was enjoying the sun.|
